The monarch told BBC World News that he "can understand" the couple's decision to leave. However, he felt the manner in which they did was "inappropriate".

He added that Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah earlier this month "did bother" him.

"I think it's very difficult to be in someone's place," he said. "I can understand the pressure they're under."

He continued: "But I think these types of conversations should be held within intimate quarters of the family.

"It doesn't really have to be laid out in the public sphere like that. It did bother me a little bit.

"I can see where they're coming from in a certain way, but I think it wasn't the appropriate forum to have these kinds of discussions."

When asked if he has "any advice" for Harry and Meghan as they continue their journey state-side, the Prince of Monaco urged them to "make the right choices".

"I wish them the best," he said. "But it's a difficult world out there and I hope he can have the judgment and wisdom to make the right choices."

Earlier this month, Harry and Meghan outlined their experience within the royal family during a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan Markle revealed that at one stage she "just didn't want to be alive anymore". When she turned to the royal family to seek help, she was told that it "wouldn't be good for the institution".

Additionally, Meghan alleged that there were "concerns" and "conversations" about her son's skin tone before his birth.

Since then, the royal family responded to the interview. Prince William stated that they are "very much not a racist family". The Queen, meanwhile, said in a statement that the entire family is "saddened" by the revelations.
